So sorry for being late with this. It's been quite a day.
First of all, I woke at 2:30-ish with my brain a-buzzin' and ,my body tossing and turning and very restless to the extent that I simply could NOT get back to sleep again. So I came downstairs and dealt with what was on my mind to such a degree that I had to rush a bit to get into school early (OK, so I did some Facebook as well). It didn't help matters that with half an hour to go my tum went on me and I spent more time than I could spare on the loo - thank the Lord for Imodium (or the Morrison's cheaper equivalent!). I'm fine now, of course. Put it down to stress.
Once in school, I was greeted by the wonderful news that as the head, deputy and KS2 coordinator were all out of school I was the big boss-girl for the day. Oh, the joy!!!
At lunchtime I could feel myself fading out rapidly. On a normal day I wouldn't have worried too much although it's wall to wall paperwork at the moment, but you can bet your bottom dollar if I did fade out the school would erupt, so I popped over to Morrison's for some so-called 'energy drink' which did the trick for an long as needed. Now I'm at home and fighting to stay awake for a decent time before crashing out or I will do the same thing again. Of course it was a remarkably quiet and settled day at school which I put totally down to my energy drink, of course.
I did get loads done today thought so am feeling very satisfied. Two internal meetings which were really extremely helpful, annual review paperwork (for two of them) set up (always a biggie), new statement IEPs started, important paperwork copied and distributed, dates decided . . . so I feel very satisfied now. A day well spent.
And now it is the weekend. All planning is done and I just have resources to make. Excellent! Two down, six to go.
